[DML] Re: Tune-up



2 suggestions:
Rain: perhaps water in the spark plug "cup" of no 6? Causes trouble.
Sputtering: ever checked spray pattern of injectors? Defective or leaking injector or bad spray pattern often causes problems with idling.
Check those first.

On the coil: I use the Flamethrower 40kV on my previous and current D without having had trouble, JMO. With your 8.5 mm wires it should do fine.

Welmoed.

> Guys; I am working on my D a little since I have a rough running engine, and am curious what the original coil has for output voltage. I'm looking at John's 25,000 volt Bosch coil [as an upgrade?] since I doubt the stock one has that much punch to it. I have +4 plugs that are a little old but few miles and are still in good shape; also Johns 8mm wires and upgraded resistor. I once used the blaster coil with my setup but I remember having problems with it - I believe it was melted distributor rotor but can't remember correctly. Nonetheless, with what I have as far as plugs, wires and resister; which coil should I be going after? My engine runs like garbage when it rains, and when it is dry it sputters at stops from time to time and just doesn't feel "right". Thanks guys -----Dani B. in FL!
